Getting bigger

I have a 72' c/10 350 350 turbo 3:08 12 bolt. I am acquiring good ole' Moms 75' 454 400 turbo not sure of gear ratio but seems fairly low. Her truck is junk and i want, at least, the engine for my truck. what is it really gonna take to achieve this. My front suspension is dwarfed in comparison. ideas?

If you look on the frame rail where the crossmember bolts in you should see a hole in front of where the crossmember is bolted in on either side. I am not sure but I have been told the crossmember needs to be relocated to where that hole is in order for the big block to bolt in. If you look at your frame rails you will see what I am talking about. Ive never had anything but a small block in mine so I dont know for sure...something you may need to be aware of though.
